I write, and I shoot stuff. I'm a freelance copywriter, cinematographer and photographer currently drifting around New York City, with plans to move to Pittsburgh. I come up with traditional and digital ad campaigns, define and defend brand guidelines, oversee UX-driven website rewrites, create digital content, and even make commercials.

My availability is kept current at WORKING NOT WORKING.

If you're really excited about a good project and you'd like to pay someone to flesh out the ideas and create your vision, write me immediately: ian.john.young @ gmail

I've had the pleasure of working alongside many incredible people at creative companies across the country while producing work for Amtrak, bobble, Carlsberg, Citi, .CO, Georgetown University, Google Play, Jamaica, Kawasaki, Kimberly-Clark, Nike, Old Style beer, Olympus, Pepsi, PIMCO, Rosetta Stone, Stacy Adams, Verizon, Volkswagen Credit, The Washington Post, Xfinity and more. Last year I was credited for award-winning work at the Cannes Lions, the One Show, the ADDYs and the FWA for Written In The Stars.

And thank you; for being interested enough to read all the way to the bottom. A rare breed, indeed.
